Vera's relationship with music was initiated by her father's assumption that she ‘would be better for a career as a musician’. Despite completing Royal College exams it wasn't until she picked up an accordion and started a band however, that her own connection and real interest was sparked. Vera reflects she did very well to have made this work as a day job until after the war, amidst a time of few jobs for girls and wives: “It was a different world. But it worked out very well for me.”
